Getting Validation Warnings – JS


    Getting Validation Warnings

    Warnings generated during validation can be retrieved using the Warnings property of EDIValidator. Access the Warnings property of the EDIValidator after calling the validate method.


    //Get all warnings from the EDI data
    for (let i = 0; i < validator.Warnings.Count; i++) {
        let warning = validator.Warnings.getItem(i);
                Type: “Warning”,
                Line: warning.LineNumber,
                Transaction: “”,
                SnipLevel: warning.SnipLevel, //SnipTestLevel Enum
                Message: warning.Message, //EDIValidationMessage Enum
                Loop: warning.Loop,
                Segment: warning.Segment,
                Element: warning.ElementOrdinal,
                Composite: warning.CompositeElementOrdinal,
                Description: warning.Description,
                Ordinal: warning.SegmentOrdinal

    In addition the EDIWarning object also contains the corresponding SNIP level for the warning. This level can be accessed through the SnipLevel enum property.

    The possible SNIP levels are:

    • Integrity-Testing for valid EDI syntax for each type of transaction
    • Requirement– Testing for HIPAA specific syntax. This tests that the transaction sets adhere to the HIPAA implementation guides
    • Balance – Testing of the transaction for balanced field totals, financial balancing of claims or remittance advice and balancing of summary fields.
    • Situational – Testing of specific inter-segment situations as defined in the implementation guide, where if A occurs, then B must be populated
    • CodeSet – Testing correct use of external code sets. Tests that only valid values of external data elements are used
    • DoesNotApply – The warning does not have a corresponding SNIP level.
